You can find me on steam as ZydrateAcademy. There's a few people who use Zydrate as a username so it may take some doin' to find me.
You can also find me on Tumblr:
Don't worry about Tumblr's reputation, my blog is 99% gaming related and little else.
Zydrate talks about Mass Effect's writing.
Iíve sort of mitigated some of the single player ďlagĒ I get from ME:A and Iíve started recording it again on my NG+. Itís a mixed bag, since the lag still happens but at a lesser rate than before and I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what settings I had that gave me the smooth run beforehand. Iím wondering if my recording software relates to it but I doubt it, as I had the performance issues even when I wasnít recording.
Either way, good to pump out some content again. I have some more thoughts on ME:A on a writing standpoint, with a few quotes from a forum thread I participated in.
Zydrate is having some performance issues with Mass Effect.
Been a while, had to really hunt for the last one of these. I explained on 188 itís because Iíve been actively recording for my youtube channel so my various gaming exploits are being uploaded daily there. Though not on time, I have 2-4 months of backlog/content to upload. It would still seem redundant if I made a blog post outlining the exact same stuff I did on the video. Half the post would be my voiceover.
Updated my upload schedule and I break down a trailer.
First, new youtube schedule for my personal channel. Havenít been doing Cities: Skylines and my Fallout 4 recordings have surpassed them so Fallout will be taking over Fridayís slot. Current schedule is thus;
WED For Honor
FRI Fallout 4
Iím actually working up another backlog which is a mixed blessing and therefore, I may double my output on grab-bag days.
As of this posting I havenít been in the mood for Skyrim but I do have 22 videos around, so thatís 3-4 months worth of Skyrim content anyway.
Meanwhile, Netflix released a new trailer for an Americanized version of Death Note, which I'm on board with.
Strap in, there's a lot to say here.
(EmP was cool enough to give me an actual review slot for this so if you wish to leave feedback, I'd prefer it to be there! Enjoy the read either way!)
Andromeda is coming out in a week (as of this writing) and I feel like I want to revisit the franchise. Iíve done a post like this a few years ago when my blog was new but didnít really settle in on a style and it was kind of garbage with a lot of pointless paragraph breaks.
Also stuff gets personal.
I would like to apologize for my inactivity for the few of my readers that actually read my content (Oh yay, another porn blog just followed me).
Thing is, I havenít actually been inactive. My current activities have all been displayed on my Youtube channel.
But before I link that, Iíd like some of you to go over this post first. It will explain why my voice is the way it is despite how Iíve identified over the years on my blog.
Did you read it?
Now hopefully with that context, I hope everyone enjoys my Youtube Channel.
Now here's some historical channel context!
The Division and some private WoW.
I managed to acquire the four-piece set Alpha Bridge in The Division, but I still donít quite have the meta set, which involves the FAMAS assault rifle. The set, at 4 pieces, allows all weapon talents to be active as long as your primary and secondary are the same class (IE: Assault Rifles). So effectively youíd be running with six talents while just using one weapon. I have some decent gear going but itís not what people technically recommend.
Still, I might explore some Dark Zone later when the holiday buzz around my household dies down. As it is, getting called away every few minutes.
Zydrate talks about The Division, Overwatch, and Dead by Daylight.
With all the holiday events popping across a few games my attention has been split. I fell off of Dead by Daylight in lieu of some Blizzard games as well as a revitalized interest in the Division.
So letís start with Dead by Daylight.
After many hours of playing the Hag I can kind of see what her weaknesses are, now. She does indeed function like a less effective Trapper and is barely faster than the Nurse. I donít often actually kill anyone on her though when I do itís very satisfying.
She needs some severe tweaking as her chase game is pretty weak while her camp game is too strong. You have to be in a certain range to teleport to tripped traps. Itís a good idea in theory that gives the Hag some decent map control but sheís too weak on multiple fronts.
